by late Ven. Nyanalokita Thera:
➥ puññā-dhārā: 'streams of merit'. It is said that one produces 4 streams of merit by offering the 4 requisites (robes, almsfood, dwelling, medicine) to a monk who has reached the conditionless deliverance of mind; further by being filled with unshakable faith in the Buddha, his doctrine and community of disciples, and by being perfect in morality (AN 4.51, AN 4.52). AN 8.39 describes 4 further streams of merit.
